World No Tobacco Day 2021 in Hoppers Crossing: Commit to Quit!

by | May 25, 2021 | World No Tobacco Day 2021

World No Tobacco Day is celebrated around the world every year on May 31.

This yearly celebration aims to support people in their attempt to give up tobacco through various initiatives and digital solutions.

Quitting can be very difficult, especially with the added social and economic stress that has come, but there are many reasons to quit.

Here are the top 5 effects of smoking on oral health:

#1 Gum Disease

Tobacco’s sugars and irritants cause gum infections. Over time, gum disease can lead to tooth loss.

#2 Oral Cancer

Tobacco causes several types of cancers, including mouth, throat, esophagus, cheek, gum, lip and tongue cancer.

#3 Delayed Healing

Smoking slows down blood flow throughout your oral cavity and thus, delays the healing process.

Because of this, simple dental procedures become more complicated:

#4 Stained Teeth

Smoking exposes your teeth to both tobacco and nicotine. As a result, stained and yellow teeth are likely to happen.

The more you smoke, the more it affects your sense of taste.

#5 Bad Breath

Smoker’s breath is caused by the particles that make up the smoke.

Once they are inhaled, the particles begin to attach to not only the teeth but all of the soft tissues as well.

The longer they remain on the surfaces of the mouth, the more bacteria they produce.

As the population of the bacteria grows, your breath will begin to take on a smell that is reminiscent of the smoke produced by cigarettes.

The smell will grow steadily worse unless you take measures to get rid of it.
